Diaz has said on numerous times he fights only for money and that titles and fans mean nothing to him... I don't really like that attitude at all. Being rich and having money is good but if thats the goal of your whole life i find it very sad.

Idk what it is about him, but evertime he fights i start laughing through his entir fight. Maybe its because the trash talk he does during the fight or the fact the he taunts his opponent, nevertheless I find him very comical, so therefor I like him.

Love both Diaz brothers, straight-ahead, no BS, awesome subs and devastating strikes (Nate shown against Marcus Davis). Both amazing fighters and still young, as they grow they're only going to get better and thats an intruiging and scary prospect lol

Every time a fighter says they do it for the fans, it comes off as such BS. Having a title just means more money per fight.

Nearly every fighter does it for the money and only the money.

I guess i can say that i don't care about him. I don't like him but i have no reason to dislike him as well.

I dont think it is nearly every fighter at all. Barely any fight for the fans but a hell of a lot fight because they want to be the best and want to go down in history. I think there are very few who fight for money alone.

The only people that are assholes are the people that claim they are a MMA fan and hate Nick Diaz. Sure i understand he can be annoying by all the shit he talks etc. but his style of fighting and his talents are amazing and no MMA fan can claim they hate that. He is easily top 5 most awesome guys to watch in MMA.

Look, both Diaz brothers are half retarded... but you can't argue with the fact that they are some of the most entertaining fighters to watch.

Also, their incredible skills cannot be denied. They are both damn good, particularly Nick.

SO to answer your question, yes.

This is pretty much spot on. It's cringe worthy watching them try and string sentences together and i dont think their attitudes outside of fights are positive to the sport in general but once they pass into the cage they are phenominal to watch.

Can't stand him but I respect his skills.
I was at the fight and the crowd were nearly all cheering for Nick.
